Young aces add a string to their bow at talent day
TORQUAY Tennis Club had seven children picked to attend a talent identification day held by the Devon and Cornwall talent performance co-ordinator.
Players went to South Devon Tennis Centre in Ivybridge on Sunday, January 20, where they were divided into their age groups and underwent fitness testing and tennis drills.
Scores and results were recorded and will be turned into reports which are sent to the parents and coaches.
The best performers could now be invited to regional talent identification sessions featuring the best players from across the region.

Those who don't make it that far will be given feedback and pointers for where they can improve before being invited to another talent identification day in July.
Torquay LTC coach Tracy Brown said the children (pictured) deserved their chance to shine.
"All the children have put in a lot of work attending squads with me and extra sessions I have run on Sundays," she said.
"The children all have a great time, and having seven from Torquay is very good and we are proud of them all. Hopefully names to watch for the future."
Kendal Brown, coach at Torquay, was invited by Devon LTA to assist on the day, giving the children another familiar face, while Tracy Brown and head coach Steve Maslen went along to watch and support.
